1. The Boulder Valley Comprehensive Plan’s (BVCP) four-body review process requires City Council, County Commissioners, City Planning Board and County Planning Commissioners to review and approve shifts of properties from County jurisdiction to City jurisdiction, as defined by the BVCP. In the recent BCVP 2015 update, the four-body review process was significantly changed. Do you agree with the changes? Why or why not?

We need to move away from burning fossil fuels as fast as possible. I would like to see all coal plants retired in my lifetime. If we could turn off all the coal plants in Colorado and replace them with 50% renewables and 50% natural gas generation, that would be a huge win. Over time, we can then replace the remaining gas generation with clean energy. Natural gas generation releases half the CO2 of coal generation. 50% natural gas generation and 50% renewables would be four times better than the equivalent coal generation, a huge improvement.
